"Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection," Meghan and Harry said in a statement at the time. "Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope."

Though Meghan and Harry seem determined to put out content, they may be a bit overwhelmed, a source revealed.

“The work is piling up, and certain deadlines can’t be missed,” an insider told OK! of their new routine with two kids.

The pair “won’t get to kick back on the beach as much as they’d like,” the source added. “They may have bitten off more than they can chew."
